#367/#84 The Monster Squad
All of the Universal monster from the 1940’s (Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, the wolfman, the mummy and the creature from the Black Lagoon) descend on a small America town and a group of monster enthusiasts kids have to try and stop them before they unleash an ancient evil.
This is just great goofy, 80’s kids movie fun. It’s the Goonies with monsters. Every kid is a stereotype, all the monsters could kill the kids in about a second if they were really trying and the rational behind them all showing up for a big monster brawl is really thin, but you don’t care. You just sit watching the silliness of the whole thing with a smile on your face.
There is this one high school kid, Rudy (Ryan Lambert), who is just the man in this film. He smokes, wears a leather jacket and spies on one of the other kid’s older sister changing. He’s supposed to be the cool older kid and normally it would feel forced but when shit starts to get real with the monsters Ruby is just badass. He takes no shit and has a one liner quip for every situation. It was like watching a teenage Bruce Campbell.
It’s very 80’s, and as I say, very goofy but I had a lot of fun watching it and laughed multiple times at the absurdity of the whole thing. Give it a go if you’re looking for something to just unwind with and not think too hard about. 4/5
